Aunt Lorene was a wonderful person, and very dedicated to her children and extended family. She insisted on visiting her sisters and their families back in Arkansas every year, which was very uncommon at the time. My Mom (Her sister), my Dad and I visited Lorene and family in Milwaukee, when I was 18. It was a wonderful experience, Lorene was so welcoming. In later visits, it was clear that her family loved her very much, and would do anything for her.

This was a happy hour for mom and me at a Mexican food Restaurant back in 210. Neither of us ever had more than one drink–that’s why we ordered these big ones. She was such a good sport, always but did not like to smile for pictures. That didn’t mean she was mad, just stubborn. <3 🙂

Lorene (that’s what my mother called her) and my mother, Eva, were cousins who played together as children, but lived hundreds of miles apart for all of their adult lives. They kept in touch over the years, though. My mother talked about Lorene often, and loved getting her letters, cards, and calls. I finally met Lorene when she and her son Larry came to Birmingham for a visit many years ago. Trips to childhood places were organized, and it was a wonderful walk down memory lane for both my mother and Lorene. Through their reminisces I got to know both ladies, and our family, a little better. When my mother died, I was grateful to become the recipient of Lorene’s cards and calls. I had been accustomed to talking with my mother by phone every night, and talking with Lorene helped keep some precious memories alive. She was a warm-hearted, loving lady, and both my daughter, Lauren, and I cherish what little time we were able to spend with her.

My Grandma was truly a wonderful woman with sense of humor. I will remember the visits with her at her apartment. She always talked to my mom on the phone. I know how much she loved me and that she always held my hand. Love you so much grandma. Miss you!!

Even when I was at my worst, Miss Hilda loved me. I will not forget how she always included me and accepted me. When I think of a Saint, I think of Miss Hilda. God be with you all.

Grandma Hyde loved unconditionally. She always made everyone feel so special. For many years, even when most of us were adults – she’d send us a Birthday card with $10 in it. That always brought a smile to our faces. The money meant nothing, it was the card we enjoyed, because grandma hand picked it for us. Who cared if was accidentally in Spanish, or had a toy truck on it – and the recipient was 25 years old, I think we all felt a little more loved because she did this for us. She was a special light in this world, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to have this incredible woman as my grandma. I love you grandma.
